gerardsweeney Posted February 17, 2010 Share Posted February 17, 2010 Hello, all.. I suspect I know the answer to this already, but would like confirmation As part of our energy saving, carbon footprint yada yada, our PCs have a small AutoIt Script running which does a shutdown and power down of the PC. I won't go into the details but - it works.. So long as it's XP. On XP - it shuts down, and powers down. On 2K - it shuts down only - the users get ye olde "it's now safe to turn off your computer" type message on screen, and they need to hold the power button in for 5 seconds to get it to switch off. The shutdown I use is shutdown(13) (shutdown, power down, force), and the script is compiled using 188.8.131.52 On the same model of PC on XP, then it works. Same model with 2K, it doesn't. Is it something to do with the ACPI installed on the 2K boxes? Or am I missing something else that's really obvious?!?! We don't have that many 2K boxes still running, so it's not screamingly urgent, but it'd be nice to fix if possible Any thoughts?
